Innovative Eco-Construction System Based on Interlocking Modular Insulation Wood & Cork-Based Panels

Design, validation and implementation of an ecological construction system based on natural biological materials to improve energy efficiency in public buildings, contributing to the mitigation of climate change.
Modular interconnected wood and cork insulating panel systems can replace traditional systems, generating technical, environnemental and socio-economic benefits for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, through the implementation of networks and joint experimentation.
